FretBoard Help!!


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone wassup? Im in the process of building a guitar..and I am in need of some help on a few things..I need some Exact measurments to get started...I've been researching it all like hell and think i could use a little help....i mean my style of guitar would b more along the lines of a Gibson guitar or even a BC Rich style Guitar...it all depends on what design I end up drawing up and liking....n e ways the question is how do i properly space out the fretwire on the fretboard? I mean what are the measurments between frets down the fretboard Exactly??..im lookin to make a longer neck than usual...my BC Rich warlock i bought is a 25.5" and has 24 frets..i would use that for sure as my template..but I have seen sum guitars with about 27 frets or a more....And I would love to have a neck like that...Im wondering if anyone in here could help me out or if n e one knows a site that could help me with the measurements of How much more length i have to add to the neck and also the actual distances frum the fretwire in each fret...thats all i really need help with at the moment...if anyone could help me Asap i GREATLY appreciate it....thanks A LOT in advance to n e one who can help me! :D
